Between 80 and 90% of women are estimated to experience cellulite at some point in their lives. Hormones like oestrogen play a role in its development, which explains why women are more likely to develop the so-called ‘orange peel skin’, while men generally escape its clutches. Typically affecting the bottom, thighs and stomach, cellulite results from an interaction between the connective tissue in the skin and the layer of fat that lies just below it. The result: dimpled skin that is incredibly difficult to shift.
Dual-Layer Thermotherapy uses radio frequency (RF) technology to tighten loose skin, improve body contours and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The non-invasive technique targets both the surface layer and the deep dermal layer of the skin. Alternating electromagnetic fields are generated which create friction and heat the deeper skin tissue. The production of collagen is stimulated, ironing out cellulite and improving the skin’s texture.
THIS TREATMENT IS TAILORED TO EACH PATIENTS NEEDS & BASED ON AN INITIAL CONSULTATION
Dual-Layer Thermotherapy is virtually pain-free. Patients have described the procedure as similar to receiving a hot-stone massage.
The amount of treatments needed depends on the severity of the cellulite and the patient’s individual response to the treatment. Most patients require between two and five treatments. You will have a clearer idea after your initial consultation.
Results can be seen right away as dual-layer thermotherapy tightens the deep structures of the skin. As collagen continues to develop, the skin becomes firmer and less dimpled. This may take a few weeks.
Dual-layer Thermotherapy is not a permanent solution to cellulite. While cellulite should be significantly reduced after the treatment, follow up procedures may be required to maintain the results. Carbohydrate-heavy diets combined with too little fibre can result in cellulite. A healthy lifestyle is recommended to sustain results.
